ShamWow / Lies

1 United States Review updated:

Shamwow is a total bunch of lies. Does NOT dry completely as the commercials claim. Leaves as much water behind as a wet towel does. These people should be arrested for false advertising.

pause the video at the 45 second mark. you'll notice cola coming out from underneath the carpet square. unpause it and pause it again when it shows the next cut to the wider shot. you'll notice that the cola disappears before he even uses the shamwow on the carpet square.

he also says it's happening in real time but they're cutting to a different angle to avoid probably showing the shamwow spilling or dripping.

these jump cuts along with the pacing of the commercial are pretty much unnoticable to the casual viewer
and are probably used to exaggerate the quality of the product.

Also, if it's not sold in stores, that means it's probably not good enough to be out on the wide market. If it's something advertised in an infomercial, it's probably not going to be as good as it seems. I mean, are people really getting suckered into buying useless/misleading products by a failed comedian?
It's as if common sense has gone straight out the window with every single person who buys products like these.
